Keith Myburgh has verbally committed to swim for Virginia Tech beginning in the fall of 2018. Myburgh is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American. He attends Hidden Valley High School in Roanoke, VA. At this year’s 3A State Championship he won the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke.

He shared,

“When I visited the campus, the staff and coaches made me feel right at home. I cannot wait to spend the next four years of my academic and athletic career as a HOKIE!”

His best times are:

  • 200 IM 1:48.13
  • 400 IM 3:45.85
  • 100 Breast 54.80
  • 200 Breast 1:58.60

All four of those times were swum just last month at the 2017 FL Dolfin ISCA Junior Cup. In the past year Myburgh has knocked five seconds off his best 400 IM time. In 2016 Myburgh’s best 200 breaststroke time was a 2:07.31. He’s dropped an impressive nine seconds in that event. Given his recent progression, Myburgh could become a significant contributor for the Hokies.

His 400 IM time would have made him the team’s second fastest performer this year and placed sixth at ACCs. He also would have been a 200 breaststroke C finalist at the Conference Championship.
